Power to lead Cardiff City Women

Cardiff City Women have appointed Hannah Power as their captain for the new season.

Emma Beynon and Megan Bowen have been named vice-captains.

Power, who is in her second spell with Cardiff, has played for much of her time there alongside previous skipper Siobhan Walsh, who retired during the summer.

The centre-back was an important figure in the club’s treble-winning 2023-24 campaign, in which they claimed the Adran Premier title, the Adran Trophy and the Bute Energy Welsh Cup.

Power said: "It's such an honour. I'm really proud to be the captain of this team. I'm looking forward to helping the team in any way I can, both on and off the pitch.

"I learned a lot from playing with Siobhan. She was such a great captain for us. I'm hoping that I can take what I have learned from her into this role.”
